The New York Times is finding itself part of its own story about John McCain's involvement with a female lobbyist. McCain categorically denied the story, and any sexual involvement with the telecom lobbyist decades ago. He's calling it a "hit and run smear campaign."
The story has also launched a massive McCain fundraising campaign, urging his supporters to contribute and take on "the liberal media and the New York Times." Debate is flaring over the paper's standards and motives in publishing the story at this time of the campaign.
Times publishers say the decision to go ahead with the story following an "agonizing process."
